Charming Hostel
As Hostels go, this place is wonderful social environment to meet people and to go on adventures from. The staff are both knowledgeable and especially helpful, really taking the time to make you feel welcomed. The accommodations are about average for a hostel, but they more than make up for it with their charm and graciousness.

Wouldn't recommend if you like sleep
Great place to stay if you're into partying. I would not recommend staying here if you plan to sleep before midnight and wake up early to do activities. The neighbors on our floor were not considerate of others sleeping. People were talking and laughing past 2AM even on a Monday. The showers are very tiny and cleanliness was alright. We were bitten by bugs almost every night. Honestly not sure if they were bed bugs or mosquitos.

Great place to stay, but staff could be friendlier
Location is good, on a main road with easy access to everything. Hostel was a fun place. Club was dead and empty. Staff was surprisingly rude. 2 of the ladies who worked there showed no interest in guest experience, and one guy looked like all he wanted to do was flirt with the 18-19 year-old girls. Breakfast is okay. Parking is free but approx 1-1.5km walk from hostel. Hostel served its purpose, but staff friendliness was disappointing.

Good stay overall!
Had a good stay at Balmer's, the double room was small but clean and comfy. Staff was very helpful but bathrooms could be better maintained. Common showers were real good.

Amazing, going back !!
Staff is super friendly, I loved the feeling of the whole place. Everyone so helpful. The only thing was the mattress, I know it’s a really old place but needs some recovering on the mattresses. Everything else just right !!!
